The Vintage Aquamarine Style Shoot was inspired by the meaning within this well known stone. The means that brings calmness, peace and good luck placed all into a wedding setting. This stone also promotes protection, while using all of these elements we were able to find a luxurious venue to bring this vision to life.
Larz Anderson House is located in the heart of Washington Dc. This venue is know for it amazing architecture and history. We utilized the gold touches within the rich structure that’s not only breathtaking but fascinating to the eye while also including the vintage and blue elements that surrounded this luxury mansion.
The Grand entrance was created to showcase the couple that loves the formality of having a grand entrance in an modern setting. Our horse was all white and sure to turn heads as she approached, including feathers as her crown hydrangea mixed with roses as her garland. This carriage was ideal for the excitement ahead and the vintage touches in the moments to come.
The floral arrangements were organic including a palette chosen to bring in light energy and fun element within the Aquamarine while keeping the overall design modest and clean. The table setting featured additional colors including blush, blue accents and gold touches. Enhancing this design with vintage place cards and menus on each setting of the tablescape. These cards were held in place with use of original Aquamarine crystals as gesture to the guest favors. Finishing with aesthetically pleasing blue chair outlined in metallic gold trim for seating. Our invitations suites were handcrafted and designed to include the visual of the venue with vintage gold wax seals finished with a royal vintage outlining within the envelopes.
Keeping the water element from the stone the placement of table and lounge area were placed in alignment with the water. The Larz Anderson house features a buddha statue near their courtyard pool where we placed our modern style lounge area, including floral columns and comfortable seating on the soft velvet blue sofa. The dinner style was designed with heavy hors d’oeuvres which was ideal for this intimate setting. Selections included small delightful crab balls topped with their specialty drizzle sauce and charcuterie cones.
Our couple covered in love and happy in the moment wore black tuxedos with blush and gold colored ties matched with organic boutonnieres. They were capture dancing and having an amazing time in the mansion and creating the love that was needed to pull our shoot together.
The outline of this story is to bring peace, a clear mind and a calm heart. I’m sure the world can use a lot of great energy and we know that our 2021 couples are excited about the calmness that awaits them in the coming months. I’m hoping that we were able to capture a since joy in the years to come and bring in more calming elements in the wave of weddings.
